Halloween is one of those holidays that is purely for fun for both adults and kids alike, and it’s a great excuse to throw a party. Lolita Healy, a nationally known Celebrations Expert and founder of Designs by Lolita , has some halloween party ideas that will bewitch your guests and keep your party fresh, fun and full of conversation and laughter, so prepare or a wicked good time.
Halloween Sip and See
Bobbing for Apples
This station is all about the apples (clearly)! Have an array of apple-flavored foods, like candied apples, apple crisp and apple-filled doughnuts. You can also set up a bobbing for apples game (do the real thing using small apples, or set up the “clothesline” version). As a fun touch, include a grab bag of bobbing for apple-related prizes: apple charm bracelets, applesauce to go, apple stickers and fake apples.
The Wicked Witch Station
In a cauldron, set up your “witches potion” with dry ice floating its way around the table. The Cast a Spell Grab Bag is a fun party game to incorporate—each kid draws a spell that they have to do at the party. Example: “Toil and trouble you are, apologize to the person next to you.”
Gooey Gore –Set up some “gross” food to go with the theme.
Kid Friendly Halloween Party Treats
Swamp Water Coolers
1 can ecto cooler
1 quart orange juice with pulp (most kids think the pulp is gross!)
1 2-liter bottle ginger ale
Ice (optional touch‹make it with gummy worms frozen inside)
Serve in real glass tumblers with orange straws.
Ready-made crescent roll dough
Mustard and ketchup
Cut the crescent dough into strips, and wrap hot dogs to look like mummies.
Bake at 375 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until light golden brown. You can
make faces using the ketchup and mustard.
Set up a dessert stations with cake and bowls of Jell-O in Halloween colors like green and orange (make it creepy-crawly by putting little plastic spiders in the Jell-O).
All that¹s left to do is eat, drink and be scary!
